Its another friendly and yes i know it is all about fitness and getting legs back but i have to admit there are a few worrying signs for me at the back in particular i thought Zouma was lazy at times plodding around is he carrying excess timber? Johnson this time playing centreback he also did not fill me with confidence....and christ the play from the back keeper to Zouma who got away with a few things today this simply has to stop we will give away so many goals if we do that during the season.

Soucek i can see why Moyes wanted shot of him he only scored again ffs...Rice really did not look interested Bowen looked busy if not doing a lot Coufal for me the best player for us today going forward.

Things to work on for sure and one of those has to be Antonios first touch it is woeful.....Benny boy quiet again Lanzini on for him but he was knocked off the ball to easy...yes it is a friendly but bloody hell we have one more game before the real deal and if Moyes and co are happy with what they are seeing then we are in trouble.

He was ok but surely you do not expect him to be in the starting line up for any game this season

Just watched the highlights, West Ham definitely need a striker, Antonio’s left footed shot that went into row z was a thing of beauty lol.
Did Vlasic do much? decent goal by Soucek, the marking for their goal was Sunday league standard

Lutons link up play was better than ours,us not knowing where each of us are,we are the same as we finished last season,basically because its the same line up.

Could be chelski stuffed 4-0 by the gooners and Tuchel questioning the players commitment:-)

We need to get this Scammaca fella up and running,to sign first would help,otherwise it will be the same old as last season,nothing up front,as its plain to see Big Mick cant hit a barn door......If he signs tomorrow it will be a push to start now.

We definitely need Scamacca in asap. We are to predictable now. We also need a left back rapidly as Cresswell just aint good enough anymore. I'd say we need 3 new additions before season starts plus a futher 2-3 before window closes.

Big Mick still has the strength and pace i feel,so back down the left is the place for him to whip it in,hes not a centre forward,as Enfield says we need another 3,we are easy pickings with our style of play too predictable,Moyes needs to adapt our link up play to be more fluid,its stale and easy to read for other teams.

He’s always been inconsistent burkie, he has always had a few good games followed by looking like a Sunday league player, he’s definitely not clinical enough to be a striker, always looks knackered as well, needs to be on the bench, I think the lack of competition for his place doesn’t help either, he knows if he’s fit then he’s starting

I think Antonio's strength would be coming of the bench for the final 20 minutes. He'd have an edge on tired defenders & could utilise his strength & pace.
